@jim161c, Thank you for the link to Racingjunk.com


@MattGent, Thanks for your interest.  My apologies for the mess of a posting and the delay getting back.  My excuse is that we were running the Champcar race last weekend (in a different car).  I think I fixed the pictures link.  Price is $19,000.


The car won in WRL.  Podium'd in Champcar.  Rules have changed in both since the car raced.  In any case, the new owner will need to make decisions about what is claimed/disclosed to race officials.  We made some decisions that other teams may or may not make.  Happy to talk privately about those decisions to a serious buyer.

How about some basics.  Price?  Location?  Points as it sits, including the engine specs not listed?


Has it won in champ or wrl?
